Today is "Pajama Day" at Younger Daughter's public elementary school. She actually doesn't have any pajamas -- she just sleeps in her clothes. (So sue me!) Sainted Husband dressed her in clothes that look as pajama-like as possible, and they were off to the bus stop this morning.
I really really don't get the point of Pajama Day, or Silly Hat day, or Wear Something Purple day. I don't understand why people think it's fun or amusing, and I wouldn't have found it fun or amusing as a kid.
Perhaps it's because I'm a nonconformist at heart, as are both of my kids, and these "let's all wear the same unusual clothing item" days are really about conformity.
Nobody finds it fun or amusing if one kid decides to wear his pajamas to school; his parents would probably get an icy message from the school about appropriate dress. No, it's only perceived as fun or amusing if the whole school does it together on the same day.
Bah, humbug! I say.
